AFFF Lawsuit for Cancer

AFFF, or aqueous film forming foam, has been prominently used by military personnel and fire fighters to fight chemical fires since the 1970s. It is now widely known that multiple ingredients in AFFF cause cancer in humans. Manmade chemicals known as PFAS, these substances are highly effective at controlling chemical blazes yet pose serious risks to persons using them. Over the course of five decades, countless servicemembers and firefighters have been exposed to PFAS in the line of duty from AFFF. Now those persons face an increased risk for multiple forms of life-threatening AFFF cancer as a result.

The risk of AFFF cancer is long-lasting, meaning cancer may develop years or even decades after exposure. The PFAS chemicals contained in AFFF are commonly referred to as "forever chemicals" because they remain intact indefinitely. PFAS have been found to bioaccumulate, or build up over time within the body. PFAS chemicals pose a risk even in small amounts, and firefighters and servicemembers who used AFFF to fight fires (both in real emergencies and during training) have been exposed to significant amounts of these carcinogens. AFFF cancer includes kidney cancer, testicular cancer, thyroid disease, ulcerative colitis, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, bladder cancer, and liver cancer.

If you developed kidney, prostate, testicular, bladder, thyroid or liver cancer, lymphoma or leukaemia after exposure to AFFF foam, you may be entitled to compensation as part of a PFAS settlement.

Since the early 1990s, medical studies have consistently found that PFAS chemicals in AFFF cause cancer. Today, the manufacturers of AFFF face difficult questions from fire fighters, military personnel and their loved ones as to why these products were still manufactured long after the risk of AFFF cancer became clear. Countless persons who have suffered from AFFF cancer or lost a loved one much too soon are now filing AFFF cancer lawsuits against manufacturers. Filing a AFFF lawsuit can serve to hold manufacturers accountable for the flagrant disregard for the safety of servicemembers and firefighters. Filing an AFFF cancer claim is also the only means to pursue the compensation your family deserves for suffering, harm, medical expenses and loss.

Since the 1970s, scientists have warned of the danger for AFFF cancer. If you or a loved one developed cancer after using AFFF as a firefighter or servicemember, contact our firm today to learn about your legal options.
